Metamorphosis - 15th January 2018

On Monday 15th January  the Performing Arts department  took  28 pupils to the Blake Theatre in Monmouth to watch Splendid Theatre’s Metamorphosis.

Metamorphosis  follows the story of Gregor Samsa, a traveling salesman, who  wakes up in his bed one morning to find himself transformed into a large insect! Splendid theatre’s interpretation encouraged the audience to question: do people ever really change or just the world around them?

Splendid is an educational theatre company that specialises in Brechtian theatre – a style of theatre that pupils must use in performance for their Unit 1 exam. Seeing the techniques being used in a professional production was a massive help for pupils and provided some artistic inspiration for when they come to create their own Brechtian performances.

Behaviour was amazing and the Performing Arts department wants to say a massive thank-you to parents and staff for their support in arranging the trip. We are looking forward to future theatre visits!
